MONEY, SEX, AND SIDNEY POITIER~ We live in a world in which many place a higher social value on celebrities, sports figures, politicians, and entertainers whose images are often presented to the public as perfect and ideal. While the world of entertainment and social media certainly has its place, we also need to connect to the deeper values and experiences that define and shape our individual character. On a daily basis we are inundated with peer pressure, judgment, sexism, bullying, gossip, fear mongering, social injustice, materialism, etc… In all of this chaos and confusion, is it possible to truly know and love who YOU really are? How can you become your authentic and best self? With an emphasis on media literacy, personal development, and radical thinking, this course will explore a range of contemporary topics including but not limited to a thorough examination of academy award winning actor Sidney Poitier’s legacy of eloquence, dignity, wisdom, and knowledge of self--all while facing adversity and discrimination.
